    scratchbuild pvc helmet!

    Hi!!, after a lot of time with zero progress, here my first atempt to scratchbuild a helmet...

    THANKS TO WOTF FOR THIS INCREDIBLE TEMPLATES!!!!! (I donīt get tired of saying this, you are the templates freaking master!!!!

    here, in Spain, I canīt find sintra( donīt even know how itīs called here) so, after the good and easy work that I find with PVC in my shoulder and knees armour, I start thinking in made a helmet with only PVC........after two days of cutting, melting, gluing and sanding, this is the result......

    Sintra is basicly just a brand name for foamed PVC, which is slightly lighter and stiffer than regular PVC sheets. I haven't really had any luck with finding it locally either - so I'm using the regular stuff too.

    But in any case; it's a great start, and I'm really looking forward to seeing how this turns out!

    The sintra is more softly and cheaply that the pvc, and it is a less manageable the pvc than the sintra

    instead of saying I need sintra to people, say I need a sheet of foamed pvc, sintra is a brand name.

    Sintra is also the name of a town in Portugal, which is probably why it's not called that in Spain. I only know this because I kept getting hits for travel guides when I did web searches for "Sintra."

    Here is what you need to ask for (it's called PVC Espumado, PVC Espuma, or Espuma de PVC in Spanish):

    -"I ythink you've done a cracking job there. I'm curios as to how you made the dome though. Anyways more pics as it looks damn good."

    -for the dome, I have divided it in 3 bigs strippes, and 4 triangled parts..
    one (the biggest) goes from ear to ear....
    the other 2, 1 from the back to the middle and 1 from the front to the middle...the 4 triangle parts fill the rest, just like a pizza..
    I have used a hotgun to give the rigth curve to the strippes


    sorry if my english is confusing and weird.....sometimes I can`t find the proper words to says what I think......
